Frequently Asked Questions
More than a million patients worldwide visit hospitals and clinics each year in countries other than their own. Here are some questions frequently asked by medical travelers—and the answers you need to know before you decide whether to journey abroad for medical care.
1. Is healthcare in Lithuania safe?
Although no medical procedure is 100 percent risk free anywhere in the world, our partners maintain health and procedural standards equal to, or higher than, those you encounter in any EU country.
2. If healthcare in Lithuania is so good, how can it be so cheap?
Healthcare in Lithuania is less costly because standards of living are more modest, doctors and staff command lower wages.
3. How much can I save?
Your savings will depend on your treatment, your selected clinic, and your travel and lifestyle preferences, but generally you can save up to 70 % comparing to your home country.
After completing a inquiry form (and maybe some additional questions that may arise) we will calculate a price for the treatment as well as for other travel services so that you could compare the price difference and clearly see your savings.
4. Does the staff of the clinic speak English (German, French, Russian)?
Most of the staff of the clinics speak fluent English and some other languages, but in any case we’ll provide a interpreter upon the request so that you could feel comfortably.
5. How realistic is the "Vacation" part of the trip?
That depends on the type of treatment you're seeking, how much time you have, and how comfortable you feel combining leisure travel with the medical side of your trip. Most patients who take a vacation as part of a healthcare journey are either planning to travel anyway or have allocated a good deal of additional time for recreation as well as recovery.
6. What if complications arise after I return home?
Depending on your treatment, your dentist or surgeon will usually strongly advise you to stay in-country for at least a few days post treatment. Your doctor will want to make sure that your treatment went well, your medications are working as they should, you're settling into any recommended physical therapies, and required follow-ups are going according to plan. Thus, by the time you board the plane home, your risk of complications will be greatly reduced.
In the unlikely event that you develop complications after returning home, you'll need to decide whether to make a return trip or continue your treatment at home. Some procedures, such as dental work, are guaranteed; so it may well be financially worthwhile, albeit inconvenient, to return.
